    BOSE Sub woofers

    The BOSE lifestyle subs don't connect straight to the sub output on the amp. In a normal BOSE setup it goes like this: BOSE speakers --> Bose sub --> back of speaker connection on the back of the amp. So unlike other subs, the bose sub doesn't connect directly to the back of the amp.

    Hard drive caddy for HP N36L microserver

    Looking at the HP Spare Parts website, the HDD caddy part number is 624879-001. Once you put the part into the cart its like $140!!!! plus on the caddy, there should be a white sticker that would say the part number and replacement part number

    New home server

    +1 on HP Microserver. I'm playing with one at the moment, just have everything stock except I upgraded the memory to 8GB as memory is cheap nowadays. Played with both server 2008 R2 and WHS 2011 and each runs very well. Tested media streaming and it doesn't miss a beat. Just a note, if you want to play MKV's, best to get a dedicated video card. Also another big note, its dead silent. Perfect for a HTPC.

    Most memorable computer?

    My P4 2.4@3.2 rig with 1Gb Corsair XMS memory (in dual channel), Asus P4C800-E motherboard, 2 x 60Gb HDD in RAID 0, Pioneer 105D DVDRW, GeForce 4200Ti video card and an Aopen H500A case. This baby played all the games I threw at it at that time and never missed a beat. Was also the first PC I dabbled in overclocking as well as running 24/7 (doing seti@home classic - go hyperthreading!) Currently its residing as my file server.
  5. I'm currently using a Lian Li PC-V354B. PC Case Gear has it for $205 You can check out my build here This case is pretty good with decent cooling 2 x 120mm front, 1 x 140mm top and 1 x 120mm rear. You are able to fit in the largest video cards by removing the HDD bay Some things to consider with this case is - that the motherboard tray is actually the side panel. - if you tend to open up your case alot, then this case is not for you as there are 8 little screws on the side where you need to unscrew to open the side (unlike other cases where you unscrew 2-3 screws at the back) - USB 3.0 is a pass through cable - It has a built in fan controller (can control all fans in the case) - The foot print is pretty big on this case, its basically short and stumpy instead of tall and thin.

    New car?! Post about it on atomic!

    Congrats on buying your first car on your L's! When i was on my L's, P's and even on my first couple years on my golds, I was still driving my mum's Corolla, until some bastard crashed into while it was parked on the street. Now I've got a Skyline.
  8. Installed via windows update this morning (Windows 7 x64 Ultimate). All went fine. Can't see any difference.
  9. Yep your one is the 34nm one (good one). If its a formatted capacity around 107gb then its the newer one.

    Phantom of the Floppera

    Should have used a dodgy 3.25 floppy disk to get the remix happening
  11. Just checked my vertex 2 E 120GB and ..........its the 34nm version. Yay! Formatted capacity is 111.79
  12. hi, got a noob question: Can you plug a case fan which has a 3 pin connection into a motherboard which has a 4 pin connection? I've only ever had motherboards which have 3 pin fan connections, until i recently upgraded to a Rampage III Gene which all fan headers have 4 pins. Cheers

    What was your best GPU?

    First time in the 'eye candy' realm was with my Obsidian Voodoo2 in SLI playing a game called Rangers Lead the way. That was so awesome. But my best GPU was the 7600GT which was AGP. That card is still going in my home server. I've had it for around 3-4 years. It had to replace the Ti4200 which dies in the arse. It played all the games I wanted to play and it just kept on going.

    My new Gaming PC

    I knew someone would be asking me that question. Couple of reasons why - - I don't normally jump on the newest tech band wagon, due to bugs or compatibility issues (this actually paid off with the SB SATA chips) - I couldn't wait any longer (stuck with a P4 for 6 years!!) - I needed a new PC It shouldn't be too bad I hope. The PSU is modular so all I have to do is connect the PCI-E cable (which i think has 2 PCI-E 6 pin socket thingies on it) to the new vid card. I actually bought a 4 pin molex (female) to a 15 pin SATA (male) adapter. This means I could attach the fan controller onto the SATA power cable hence reducing one cable from the PSU. Yay!!!

    Using HDMI instead of DVI

    sorry its the G2412HD....wasn't at home when i posted. So basically there is no difference. Awesome, I guess that will save me from buying a mini HDMI cable :)
